Prof. Tinyiko Maluleke, a distinguished South African theologian who is a scholar in residence this term at the Nagel Institute, is writing a book on Mandela and hope.  He will give a public lecture on this topic here at Calvin on Tuesday, March 6.  Its title is "Giving an Account of the Hope in Nelson Mandela."

Maluleke, who teaches at the University of Pretoria and who is an outspoken public theologian, insists that his study will not be a romanticization of Mandela, nor does he intend to "idealize or glamorize hope either." Most of the time, Maluleke argues, Mandela's hope "lived in the dark, damp and wet places of the soul; where survival, meaning and duty fought running battles."

Do come and learn more about Mandela, the sources of his hope, and the complexity of this deep Christian virtue.
